Pork Belly Miso

$16.00 · 29 Reviews

Find this delightful cafe located along Bukit Timah Road for delicious pasta and grain bowls. Spice lovers, dig into the al dente Asian-Spiced Seafood Pasta ($19) with just the right amount of heat and fresh seafood like prawns and squid. Also good is the Pork Belly Miso ($16) – picure tender braised pork belly with a well-balanced fat-to-meat ratio alongside crunchy dry ramen crisps, miso cream, nori and an onsen egg.

Unfortunately, the egg wasn't as runny as it should be and the kakuni braised pork belly did not melt in my mouth as it did previously.

The aburi mentaiko salmon grain bowl did not stand out as well.

While the braised pork belly is tender with a good proportion of meat and fats, the complimenting ramen crisps add a nice crunch to the dish which we particularly enjoyed.

Something about pork belly just makes you love it. The balance between lean meat and fat, mmmmmm.

The pork belly was soft and tender, and also well seasoned. You will love this if you love braised pork!

The rice bowl came with with an onsen egg, ramen crisps (basically mamee noodles), 2 pieces of pork belly, pickled cucumbers and the rice was topped with a small salad. The menu said it would come with an edamame salad but there was none of that in the bowl. When you mix in all the ingredients in the bowl, the rice actually becomes quite a tasty mouthful, with different flavors and textures from the sauce, mamee noodles and salad. The pork belly is quite tender but 2 pieces of pork seems like a sad serving size. The whole rice bowl was also abit too cold for my liking?? like it was prepared way ahead of time.

Was surprised that the aburi salmon mentaiko don (grain bowl) was a cold dish because the salmon was already in a salmon mayo form. That made it slightly underwhelming. There was a strong mayo taste which I didn’t mind, but may get gelak after a while for some. An average dish, probably wouldn’t recommend everyone try it.

The pork belly miso, however, was delicious. Two fat pieces of melty pork belly, mamee noodles for crunch (it worked really well!), a softboiled egg, and two types of seasoned vegetables atop a bed of Japanese rice. The combination of flavours and textures were very pleasant and I would definitely eat this again.

It was $16++ per bowl, but used entertainer so after GST it came out to $17.12 for the two bowls. A steal!

It's miso pork belly don felt so clean and green. Kudos to its extra tender goodness of pork belly slabs, it melts off revealing the dedication in preparing it. Swapped the rice to quinoa with salad for an additional $3 hence the dish was $19 before the one for one kicks in.

They sure do great and refreshing dons. I'll be spoilt for choice in choosing this or the kimchi fried fish dish
